Batch file help

Postby Sisco22 » Wed Apr 18, 2012 2:54 pm

Hey guys,

I am needing help with writing a batch file that can delete files from creation date. Basically we have a file share that has a ton of data on it and want to delete files older than 30 days from the creation date. Is anyone good with batch files?

Thanks!!

I'm trying to finish my thesis. Normally I'd try to figure this out myself and make sure it works, but because I'm short on time, here's a link that looks like it should help you out.

With some more googling, you can probably find how to compare numbers against the creation date. Batch file scripting is so unintuitive sometimes. It might be beneficial to install Python on the machine and use that instead haha
